President Donald Trump is looking to fiercely combat harsh rhetoric used by the United Nations towards the nation of Israel.
In doing so, Trump is making clear the stance that the United States will support its Middle Eastern ally.
Per Allen B. West:
Trump has once again proven there’s bite behind his bark as this morning the Trump State Department has announced it will boycott a session of the U.N.’s Human Rights Council (and possibly all future ones) amid growing concerns by the administration over the U.N.’s anti-Israel stance.
Trump is vigorously supporting Israel:
The Free Beacon reports:
The UNHRC, which includes member countries cited for mass human rights abuses, is poised on Monday to adopt at least five anti-Israel resolutions, prompting outrage in the Trump administration over what officials described as the council’s unjust bias against the Jewish state.”
The action on these items has prompted the Trump administration to boycott the council and refuse to attend the Monday meeting, according to administration officials apprised of the situation who spoke with the Free Beacon.
On Monday, the UNHRC is set to consider an agenda known as the “human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories.” It is said to include several anti-Israel declarations that the Trump administration fiercely objects to.

Senior Trump administration officials who spoke to the Free Beacon said the upcoming resolutions affirm the U.N.’s unacceptable bias against Israel, which remains the only member nation that has specific agenda items aimed against it.
The Trump administration told the Free Beacon it is fully committed to voting against “every resolution” targeting Israel and that it will encourage allies to do the same.”
